Gov. Herbert To Deliver Fifth State of State Tonight

Jan 29, 2014

Gov. Herbert will give the State of the State Wednesday night.

The stage is set for tonight’s ‘State of the State’ address by Gov. Gary Herbert.

A spokesman for the governor, Marty Carpenter, says the main points of the speech will include education and air quality – two big priorities in the governor’s latest $13.3 budget.

Health care is also likely to be part of the address. Last week, Herbert said he plans to expand Medicaid coverage to low-income Utahns, but the details are still unclear.

In an interview with UPR, Herbert said an expanded Medicaid would reach Utahns with limited access to healthcare.

Herbert will speak at 6:30 p.m. at the Utah State Capitol House Chamber. Join UPR for live coverage of the event.
